Seems you can't relate to the issue because you no longer experience the difference between what you hear while playing and the playback. Yet you obviously has the same issue before you went pro.I guess since I do it so much I don't understand about all the brain power some of you are talking about. When I am cutting tracks, I'm thinking about parts sometimes or I'm thinking about what I want for lunch. I am listening more than using my brain to play. I just listen to the music and my body reacts to that.
